Having lived in the Caribbean for several years, we were intrigued to sample the food at Chez Denis. We were not disappointed! The food was excellent, with typical Caribbean flavours. We will return for second helpings next time we are in Norwich.

We tried to go one evening , but there was no room , as it's very small. However it's also a good sign. Went again last week after booking a table. The staff are very friendly. However we were not bought any bread to the table like the other tables. We were also not served our drinks before another (large)... More

Cannot speak too highly of this unpretentious restaurant, set in the middle of Norwich - opposite Debenhams it may be helpful to know, as our Taxi driver didn't know where it was! We have visited twice and would go much more often if we didn't live over 60 miles away. The food is superb especially the fish and the atmosphere... More

Very disappointed, will not be returning. The waiter did take the burnt sandwiches off of the bill as he knew before we even mentioned the bill how terrible they... More

A night out in the City was finished off with an impromptu visit to Chez Denis (pronounced Denee). Normally we avoid places that advertise their food through pictures on A boards however seeing the name triggered a memory that encouraged us to visit. We were met at the door by the owner, Denis, who was welcoming and friendly. The decor... More

We are in Norwich visiting UEA and found this little gem on trip advisor (although to find a "proper" restaurant on trip advisor for Norwich is a task in itself as most of the places listed seem to be coffee shops and tea rooms) The service and food were great, especially the owner Denis who is probably one of the...

Have been to Chez Denis under previous management so what a lovely surprise on opening the door to find the restaurant had been updated. It was so clean and well laid out. I had omelette and chips and very nice it was too. The waiter was such a pleasant young man and very efficient. Will definitely go there again.

Just happened to find Chez Denis on a Friday lunchtime and not to be disappointed. Very good omelette and hand crafted chips - oh the diet lost out! Could not fault service and the evening menu looks a bit hot!! Certainly use this one again.

Having been here twice now, this place does NOT fail to deliver. The best food by far and amazing service also. Such a lovely restaurant from start to finish. Cannot compare it to anything or anywhere else! Will definitely return.
